#18186: Default registration assumptions in WP Multisite
 Reporter:  terryjsmith   |      Owner:
     Type:  defect (bug)  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  General       |    Version:  3.2.1
 Severity:  major         |   Keywords:
 By default, when you create a new site, it does not set the "registration"
 site meta key.  However, in wp-signup.php by default it assumes it to
 "all" and allows users and sites to be created (line 381):

 // Main
 $active_signup = get_site_option( 'registration' );
 if ( !$active_signup )
         $active_signup = 'all';

 However, in the network settings page, by default it sets it to none (line

 if ( !get_site_option( 'registration' ) )
         update_site_option( 'registration', 'none' );

 With the new simple flow from a standalone to multi-site installation, new
 blogs should likely have it set to none by default or it should be an
 option during set up.

 Props to leenewton for discovery.
